Most countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through rental car supplier, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some insurance on your rental; however, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to search for an open gas station near your rental car supplier
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your car. You can use as much fuel as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||You usually pay a more expensive price for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.
Before you leave the lot
Before you begin on your Covington trip, go over a few items before you leave the car rental lot. It's important to:
- Inspect your vehicle and be sure there is no dents or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on the paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new area
